Hardwired Speed Loss

I have just installed three eero pro6 units. Two are hard wired inside the house. I have 1GB internet and I see close to !GB from both units. I have hardwired a third to my garage using Cat6 and I can only get 100MB speed. The cable is new and I have tested it and know it's good. Distance from house to garage 150ft.

Is this normal because of the distance ? Or do I have another issue ?

Speeds being limited to 100 MB would seem to indicate a cat5 cable somewhere in the topology, a faulty cable, or a faulty ethernet port. Giving us a call would be the quickest way to get this further investigated to determine how to best improve the speeds. If calling is not an option for any reason, I will be sending a DM as well so we can investigate through there.
